SP 122

Notes: This is an Egyptian self-propelled howitzer that is basically a US M-109 with the 155mm howitzer replaced by a 122mm D-30 howitzer. This was done because the Egyptian Army had a large number of towed D-30 guns that they wished to be more mobile. The D-30 in this role has a direct-fire capability with sights appropriate to this purpose. 100 of these vehicles were built between 1987 and 1998.
